On the fifth and final day, the exhibition area showcasing all of the competing team was open for viewing. Each team has their own exhibit booth to show case their project.
The highlight of the Imagine Cup worldwide final is the World Festival. This event was planned in the evening, at a desert location near the Pyramid. A special stage was built on the desert not far from the Pyramid and uses the Pyramid as the backdrop for the event. Final winning teams for Imagine Cup final were announced during the World Festival. With the real Pyramid as the backdrop for the presentation stage, the World Festival was an amazing event, full of excitement and energy.

After the World Festival, all attendees went back to the hotel. A farewell party was held at on of the hotel ball room well into 3:00 AM. Some of the attendees start to leave for the airport since mid night, many stay up through the night and went to the airport without sleeping on the last day of the event.
This was an amazing and exciting event…
I have the opportunity to meet many intelligent, creative and hard work students from all over the world.
